Psalms 57 (asv)

Psalms 57 (asv)

For the Chief Musician; set to Al-tash-heth. A Psalm of David. Michtam; when he fled from Saul, in the cave.

57:1Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me;

For my soul taketh refuge in thee:

Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I take refuge,

Until these calamities be overpast.

57:2I will cry unto God Most High,

Unto God that performeth all things for me.

57:3He will send from heaven, and save me,

When he that would swallow me up reproacheth;

Selah

God will send forth his lovingkindness and his truth.

57:4My soul is among lions;

I lie among them that are set on fire,

Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows,

And their tongue a sharp sword.

57:5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens;

Let thy glory be above all the earth.

57:6They have prepared a net for my steps;

My soul is bowed down:

They have digged a pit before me;

They are fallen into the midst thereof themselves.

Selah

57:7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed:

I will sing, yea, I will sing praises.

57:8Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp:

I myself will awake right early.

57:9I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples:

I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

57:10For thy lovingkindness is great unto the heavens,

And thy truth unto the skies.

57:11Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens;

Let thy glory be above all the earth.
